I wanted to let you know that I'm publishing a game I created, called Waste Not, to teach about the waste stream.  In short the game rewards more sustainable action and encourages innovation and creativity.  This is a great game for classrooms, and community groups to start rethinking the cycle.  If you'd like a printed copy it is only currently available for the next month on Indiegogo so please check it out today.

I have other games in my queue to finish up that include topics like permaculture, community redevelopment, sustainable design, and food systems.  But first I need to get enough support to get this one off the ground.

I'd really love it if you'd consider supporting Waste Not on Indiegogo and using it in your work for Transition.  This is meant to be a living game and will be updated based on feedback and technological innovation so comments are more than welcome, they are encouraged.

MoveOn has initiated a sign-up for members to bring petitons to a nationwide audience.  I have started one to establish state banks to replace corporate control of our money and rescue our economy.  North Dakota state bask has brought prosperity to it's citizens - balanced their budget, reduced unemployment and reestored funding to social services.  Let's get this to happen!  See at

 Thomas H. Greco, Jr. -- one of two or three "fathers" of the rethinking of the role of our monetary system (local money, credit clearing, alternative and complementary currencies, local resilience, free money, free banking) -- will be guest in Kate's and my home April 13-19. All week -- we're available for public and private events, interviews, workshops, consulting, 1:1's, Rockies hikes.  Such a wonderful opportunity to learn about "money" -- what it is and what it isn't, how it serves you and how it exploits, new systems that focus on alternative ways of "offering" our skills and resources and meeting our "needs".  If you have ever "traded" or "bartered" with another person or family, and you like the result, you must meet Tom.  See brief bio below.


Three Scheduled Meetings Week of April 13-19


1. Open House in the Kelly-Squires Home.  779 Nighthawk Circle, Louisville Colorado. April 14 - 1:00-9:00p.m.  Drop by.  Bring a healthy snack.  And a friend.  Stay as long as you wish. If you like what you hear, you'll have plenty of time during the week to join us at breakfast, get copies of Tom's books, attend other meetings, and/or schedule some personal time with Tom.


2. Highland City Club in Boulder.  885 Arapahoe. 12:00-2:00. April 15.


Web address:

Please be aware that space is limited and that you must be on the guest list to attend.  Contact Chris Dwyer in advance  via email or phone to be put on the guest list., 303.494.1521.


3. Public Meeting at Louisville Library.  April 16.  10:30 to 12:30 p.m.

Louisville Library Main Floor Meeting Room, 951 Spruce St, Louisville, CO


Additional Special Meetings You May Want to Schedule

We are free on Thursday and Friday evenings, as well as Monday, for this group to launch some informal events.  Anybody have suggestions?  Potluck dinner?  Small group discussions?  Take some hikes.  Watch some monetary movies together?

What are you all doing to get rid of plastic bags. I already know of S.Fra. In the UK we've got 200+UK-PlasticBagFree campaign groups and our coalition government has launched the first ever ' England Waste review - call for evidence '.
I'm personally engaged with 2 others in starting on a journey to entice the deliverers of the 2012 London Olympics to make them A PLASTIC BAG FREE OLYMPICS.
If you happen to think that this is worth supporting please do so. An email / mandate from your whole group would be perfect

We're occasionally asked what's the difference between option 1:) COMMENT WALL; and option 2) SEND MESSAGE TO GROUP? Both techniques mail to everybody on U.S.-wide Email List. However, the COMMENT WALL keeps a full copy of your outgoing email in the mail log at the bottom of this page. In addition, the contents of your COMMENT WALL are displayed for the entire membership to review in the center column of the homepage. Option 2, SEND MESSAGE TO GROUP, mails to all members of the group, but keeps no record for later newcomers.

Is there a list to discus potential TT "recruitment targets?"

I think one of the best and easiest things we can do at home at night sitting in front of our computers is to locate other groups (whether they are local real world groups or just one of thousands of on-line groups) and let it's members know about the TT movement. If necessary we can get a whole bunch of us together and post on their website to explain it in terms they will understand?

It's as simple as this, I think in many cases the people we really want to reach may be very busy already doing their own thing talking to their own people living with their head down taking care of ONLY their own little green acre. They may not have the time or social bandwidth to reach out to us. We need to go where they are.

Along that line I think I have found a "target rich environment" here...
and here

So please tell me if you have already hit these people up in your area?

And let me know what you think of this idea of TT evangelism? Good or Bad? Does it help us or hurt us?
